Receiving “Spring” in a gift basket is one of my favorites, maybe because I live in Michigan and just about now I am starting to think of warmer weather and look for signs of Spring.
My soul lite up when I received this spring basket recently and I patiently waited and watched for each blossom to appear. I get the same feeling being a part of a “Block of the Month” waiting for each bundle to arrive then creating a beautiful block from it!
This year, Fat Quarter Shop is using Avalon by Fig Tree Quilts for their annual Designer Mystery quilt. The fabric is light, a little whimsical and grounded with a bit of navy, which you’ll find peppered through the quilt. For a little treat, you will receive a MINI Charm Pack of Avalon with the first month’s block, a taste of the fabric before the club kicks into full gear! Each of the twelve sampler blocks is designed by a different Moda designer and feature rows of baskets, stars, flowers and houses.
I am thrilled to be one of the designers for the basket row with Joanna from Fig Tree and Sandy from Pieces from my Heart. It has been so much fun to create this block and use these beautiful fabrics – they are so fresh and spring-like!
